Wlliamsport, PA (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
Alert1, a leading national provider of medical alert systems, is recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month in 2012 by donating to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. During their “Breast Cancer Awareness Promo” from October 13th – October 31st, Alert1 will be showing their support by donating $1.00 for every order to the BCRF.
The mission of the BCRF is to “achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime” and 91 cents of every dollar they spend goes towards breast cancer research and increasing public awareness about good breast health. BCRF has received an A+ rating from CharityWatch. BCRF research has been instrumental in saving lives, improving the quality of patient care, and keeping survivors healthy.
The United States is currently home to 2.6 million breast cancer survivors and another woman is diagnosed with breast cancer approximately every 2.5 minutes. Even though women over the age of 65 actually run a much higher risk of developing breast cancer, studies show that they are not as concerned about developing breast cancer as they once were. Alert1 is committed to helping people age safely and independently in their own homes. This commitment includes promoting breast cancer awareness among older women as well as supporting research to fight this disease.
“This is a cause that has touched so many lives and has affected so many, it is an issue we cannot ignore.” Ritch Haselden, VP of Sales for Alert1. “It’s not only about raising awareness, it’s about encouraging people to do more by setting an example to support research and someday, finding a cure. Alert1 is proud to support a cause that benefits women everywhere.”
